John Witherspoon aka 'Pops' or 'Spoons' has passed away. The man who showed us how to coordinate and the best way to handle a dog is to "you grab a dog & choke him... Then all day long just foot up his ass BANG BANG BANG" died suddenly in his home.
“It is with deepest sorrow that we can confirm our beloved husband and father, John Witherspoon, one of the hardest working men in show business, died today at his home in Sherman Oaks at the age of 77,” Witherspoon’s family said in a statement to Deadline. “He is survived by his wife Angela, and his sons JD, Alexander, and a large family. We are all in shock, please give us a minute for a moment in privacy and we will celebrate his life and his work together. John used to say ‘I’m no big deal’, but he was huge deal to us.”
